Surveys, Presentations and Strategies

Nursing Staff Training Session
Nursing Staff Training Session

This Spring we conducted a survey of providers and caregivers in the adult care community.  We did an assessment of how much they knew about HIV and asked follow-up questions.  Most of the group indicated that they would like additional training on caring for people with HIV, but that they had not had much contact with clients with HIV.  Much of the training needed would be in HIV transmission and caring for those with other co-morbidities.

Presentations were given in Seattle at an HIV conference, as well as in conjunction with Friendly House's Gay and Grey project where older gay adults are presented with information that is uniquely relevant to aging as a gay adult.

Ongoing strategies will be to work with the newly formed Coordinated Care Organizations (CCO's) to be a provider for those with HIV/AIDS and to strategically increase our services to help people stay in their homes as long as possible and to avoid higher cost health care.
